The Houston Texans have signed former Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor, giving them an effective backup to Deshaun Watson or an interim starting quarterback in a worst case scenario.

Here are five of Taylor’s best games throughout his career.

Taylor was responsible for four touchdowns in the 30-28 win over the Texans, his eventual team. The former 2011 Baltimore Ravens sixth-rounder went 11-of-21 for 211 yards, three touchdowns, and rushed for another.

In what was Taylor's coming out game, the former backup to Joe Flacco exploded going 21-of-29 for 277 yards, three touchdowns, and posting a 136.7 passer rating without taking a single sack. Buffalo dominated 41-14.
